Some three police officers involved in the attack on Citi News’ journalist, Caleb Kudah and the subsequent raid of Citi TV and Citi FM have been withdrawn from the National Security Ministry.
“The three (3) police officers involved have been withdrawn and are to report to the Ghana Police Service of investigation and disciplinary action,” a statement from the Ministry of National Security and signed by the sector minister, Kan Dapaah stated.
The three are to face disciplinary action from the Ghana Police Service.
The Ministry, which instituted an investigation into the assault also concluded that the action by its operatives violated the Ministry’s operating standards.
It has also withdrawn the secondment of its Director of Operations, Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman.
“The secondment of Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman (Director of Operations) at the Ministry has been reversed. The officer is to report to the Chief of Defence for further investigations and appropriate action.”
The Ministry’s statement also concluded that Mr. Kudah’s entry into the National Security Ministry was unlawful, though it is not clear which law was breached as the statement failed to mention any law to back its claim.
